As we're all about salads here at the moment I find myself trying out different flavours and dressings so they're not boring.

And that's one thing about this beetroot goats cheese salad. It's definitely not boring!

The contrast of the spinach, grated beetroot, crunchy walnuts amd creamy goat's cheese mixed with the honey mustard dressing is just amazing.

You can enjoy this as a cold goats cheese salad for lunch, dinner or even as a side to complement other dishes.

This beetroot and goat cheese salad is a great choice for summer.

It's got a refreshing and light combination of flavours to perfectly complement the warm weather.

Vibrant colours of the beetroot, combined with the creamy goat cheese creates a visually appealing dish that is as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the taste buds.

The cheese adds a creamy and slightly tangy element to the salad, balancing the earthiness of the beets and sweetness of the honey mustard dressing enhancing the whole taste experience.

Both beetroot and goat cheese are also both packed with essential nutrients, like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

They help contribute to a healthy and balanced diet, ensuring you can enjoy the summer season while nourishing your body!

🔪 Step By Step Instructions

Detailed instructions are in the recipe card below. But here is a quick step by step guide of how to make this easy shredded beetroot and goat's cheese salad recipe:

Step 1

  • Place all the honey mustard ingredients into a jar and shake well. Season to taste.

Step 2

  • Place the spinach leaves, grated beetroot and toasted walnuts in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3

  • Toss honey mustard dressing with the salad until well coated.

Step 4

  • Divide the salad in two, sprinkle over the crumbled goat’s cheese and serve. Season to taste if necessary.

📖 Substitutions

  • Baby Spinach Leaves - although I use spinach solely here you could use a mixed bag of spinach and lettuce leaves.
  • Beetroot - use pre-cooked beetroot (it's less effort and no roasting required!). I use the beetroot you get in the salad section of your supermarket in packets. Then grate it with a grater.
  • Walnuts - I lightly toast the walnuts in a small pan first. You don't have to toast them if you don't want to. You could also use other nuts too.
  • Hard Goats Cheese - I prefer hard goats cheese but soft goats cheese will also work.
  • No Fat Yogurt - use plain or Greek, it really doesn't matter.
  • Honey - use runny honey to make the dressing.
  • Wholegrain Mustard - needed for the dressing.
  • Dijon Mustard - needed for the dressing.
  • Freshly Grated Salt and Black Pepper - used to season to taste.
